Thirty choir voices to sing in Stanstead

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Stanstead, Len­noxville

Therenowned Church of St. John the Evan­ge­list Choir, from Ot­tawa, will be bring­ing their mu­sic to our re­gion at the end of March, per­form­ing at Anglican Church ser­vices in both Stanstead and Len­noxville.

“The choir is com­ing down for the or­di­na­tion of two new min­is­ters at St. Ge­orge’s Church, in Len­noxville, and they of­fered to come to Stanstead to sing,” said Al Smith, a war­den with Christ Church, in Stanstead. Rev­erend Cur­tis Pat­ter­son will be of­fi­ci­at­ing at both ser­vices.

The choir of thirty will spend the week­end in the East­ern Town­ships, first putting on a con­cert on Satur­day, March 26th, at St. Ge­orge’s Church in the evening. On Sun­day, March 27th, they will sing dur­ing the 10:30 ser­vice at Christ Church, in Stanstead, and then again dur­ing the 4:00 ser­vice at St. Ge­orge’s, in Len­noxville.

The St. John’s Choir has quite a reper­toire, go­ing from re­nais­sance and baroque motets to con­tem­po­rary spir­i­tu­als and songs of praise. They sing reg­u­larly at their home church, in Ot­tawa, at other churches, and went on a for­eign tour to Great Bri­tain a few years ago where they sang at St. Giles Cathe­dral, in Edinburgh, St. Martins in the Fields, in Lon­don, and at West­min­ster Abbey.

“The en­tire com­mu­nity, re­gard­less of faith, are wel­come to come to these ser­vices to hear the choir,” com­mented Mr. Smith.
